When an Infoobject with a MATN1 conversion exit is imported into a BW/4HANA system, the original length (usually 18) is automatically changed to 40.
An attempt to change this back fails with messages like:
Characteristic &1: The length has changed from 000040 to 000018
Master Data Table /BI?/P&1 contains data: Characteristic 0MATERIAL cannot be activated
SID Table /BI?/S&1contains data: Characteristic 0MATERIAL cannot be activated
